    I got rearended on I275 we were in bumper to bumper traffic in the rain,
    I came to a stop and Bam!!! my truck got a smart car supository:eek:. I pulled off to the side of the Highway and much to my amaizement not a scratch on my truck but that smart car was crippled:D. I owe it all to the pintle hook that I keep on my trailer hitch. This thing is so much more massive and sticks out further than a standard trailer hitchthat it stopped the car before it could ever make it to mu bumper. I love this thing!

    If the car DID make it to your bumper, that would have meant the hitch would be sticking out its rear window....

    My Camera Battery was dead and it was already dark out so my phone wouldn't have done any justice. Plus It would have seemed od for me to keep snapping off pictures of his car when Mine was perfictly fine.

    Nice, but seriously to destroy a smart car i think you just need to JBweld a toothpick to your bumper
